That's cool! I wonder how he could managed to keep the root cool in 4 hours direct sun, unless the temperature is low. But how about in summer?

did you read this :

"Hey Kevin, want me to really blow your mind? The Darlingtonia is growing in Miracle Grow potting soil. Has been for two years now. Everyone says that is instant death for carnivorous plants. I thought instant death would be a lot faster"

OMG, he`s doing everything wrong & the Darlingtonias are alive & well....

I think the weather help alot. In our place, it's hard to cool down the root in such an extremely hot temperature. Unless we grow it in air cond room.

I've tried twice before, but just couldn't find a right way to keep it. What I mean is to grow it with an easiest and most economical way in our climate.
